I am trying to activate an older copy of Acrobat and the program will not recognize my internet connection. Is there any way to overcome this issue? I have the serial number and I get stopped at that activation screen and asked to retry activating over the internet.

Mac or Windows, and EXACTLY which version of the operating system?
Recent Mac AND Windows operating systems have been known to cause "odd" problems
Are you using a computer Administrator account with full read/write permission?
Exactly which version of the program do you have that is causing problems?
